A 58-year-old male patient, complaining of recurrent paroxysmal thoracalgia for the past year, presented himself for a check-up. After resting, his symptoms were less pronounced. Physical examinations, electrocardiogram and chest radiograph were unremarkable. A coronary CT angiography (cCTA) was requested for further evaluation.
